Our Story

I have come a long way in the few years I have been researching my products and business direction. There has been an extensive period of product research and product testing.
From the starting point of becoming a mum and wanting to create a massive amount of things for my children. Looking at what I wanted to do and what I found achievable to be able to do, to researching the machines and products I needed to create this dream. After a year of research and contemplating I finally bit the bullet and set my future, and created Dream Chaser Designs. Starting out with creating matching clothing for my boys and cute kids products.
But this wasnt enough for me, with so many new similar businesses popping up over the following 6 months I began my research and testing in looking for a new direction. 12 months later I have found my new main business focus.
I have always been a massive supporter of reusable items and especially the pretty glittery kind. And I wanted to start sharing that love, along with my love and addiction of handmade items. Therefore tumblers and glasswares glittered and coloured were born.
You can still purchase alot of our origional range of childrens items. Just check the website or send us a message.
Our range of glasses and tumblers are all handmade with love and care and absolute addiction.
I strive to make stunning and unique long lasting items that you will absolutley fall in love with and cant help but use.
I have sourced and tested high quality stainless steel, double wall, insulated cups and bottles ensuring they will keep your drinks hot or cold for an extensive period. Over a period of 7 hours with minimal disturbance and top closed our starting temp was 90 degrees, at the end of the test period it had only dropped down to 47 degrees
And while it is true you can go to a shop and buy a much cheaper item, I can promise you that my products, if looked after as per the care instructions I send with each one, your cup will last a very, very long time and look as good as it did the day you received it.
The full process of making each glass and tumbler takes a minimum of 7 days from start to full cure. Depending on my order load it could vary to a maximum 28 days.
With a large range of glitter choices that is forever growing. Aswell as a wide range of colour pigments so that I can make something that will suit you perfectly.
All our cups that are made and finished to order are coated over all decals that are placed onto your cup, ensuring a long life of all aspects of your item. and unlike some finishes that are made onto some glittered items. our resin finish will ensure your glitter stays stunning and sparkling like it is in the bottle, and it gives you a super smooth finish with no grainy glitter feel without risk of the glitter coming off.
About me

My name is Nikki, I am a single mum of 2 gorgeous boys. I have a passion for sustainability and helping others with sustainable choices. I am a full time mumpreneur. I have completed 2 university degrees of Sustainable Tourism and Human Resources.

I love creating and I am determined to create amazing products that not only look stunning but are useful and convenient. I have tied these things in with my passions to create functional art within my reusable travel mugs and jewellery. My Travel Mugs are created with love and passion and that is portrayed within every piece.

Where are we

Our products  are handmade right here in Australia, in Nambucca Heads, NSW. You can find us at a few local markets including Urunga Riverside Markets, Coffs Harbour Made With Love Markets and a few pop up events.

Our Jewellery

Our jewellery is created using resin that is left over from creating our mugs and artwork pieces. This is incorporated from my sustainable passion and wanting to reduce wastage within life and my business ethics.

I use Surgical steel stud posts for all my studs with butterfly backs, these can upgraded to large backs if required (these are great if a gift for a grandparent). Our hook earrings are made from Sterling Silver 925 except where stated.

Our Artworks

Our artworks are created out of pure joy of watching and making colours blend and flow. I use high quality handmade bases for my artworks that I source from reputable suppliers.

We want to provide the highest quality possible and that all starts with the artwork base.

 

Our Mugs

Our mugs are sourced from high quality suppliers that also manufacture top branded reusable mugs. They will keep your coffee hot for hours or cold for up to 24 hours.

By choosing to use reusable mugs you are supporting the cause of reducing the ever growing landfill crisis. Most Cafes will support your reusable choice with offering a discount on your coffee purchase.

Supporting Others

As I am not the only small business owner out there that is striving to bring or make you amazing products, you will be able to find links to some amazing small businesses, and even be able to purchase directly on the website from some very special business owners and local artists.

 

The Resin

I source only high quality resins that meet all Australian standards. I use only FDA certified resins on items that require it, this is most important for our reusable mugs and all items on this website including other makers that I promote and sell for.
